Ratings and Reviews
If you enjoy random unneeded changes....
500px likes to just randomly change things for no reason. The newest version is a perfect example. The notifications section is now hidden so perfectly that ushers cant find it. Go to home then look away from the buttons lineup ... look in the upper banner for the gray on gray, nearly invisible icon of a bell. You can ONLY find it on the home section
While we're at it. You may not know you're in the home section since the button bar doesn't highlight the active section. The selfie button for 14 year olds that was added to a "professional art photography" site app appears to be the active section even when it isn't.
Recent programming changes at 500px indicate that they are more interested in being another instagram than they are an art photography site.
I really like this app and the photographic community that supports it. Compared to some other similar apps (e.g., Flickr), it is much easier to build connections to interesting photographers and receive feedback quickly. Also unlike Flickr, nobody on 500px seems to use their ‘board’ as a dump for long series of repetitive unedited smartphone pictures. The actual upload process for pictures could be a little easier, especially for keywords - although the app suggests keywords, most are either repeated variations or just irrelevant, while it does not seem to recall your past often-used keywords from your galleries. Still, overall this is a great app and an enthusiastic, welcoming and discerning photographic community!
Good But Could Be Amazing
Unfortunately, evening gets compared to Instagram regarding photo sites. What I like about 500px is that I get to see a considerable amount of photographers from overseas. I also enjoy the feature that allows one to see what camera and settings were used to take the image. There are so many people on 500px using older cameras, and getting amazing shots. I love it. It’s the mind behind the lens, not the camera body!
The only downside is the implementation of tags as apposed to Instagram. Instagram has this down to a science, but I’m sure it is proprietary, so no blame on 500px, but it would be nice.
